I’m writing an article for Pakistan Today on Aung San Suu Kyi’s mockery & scorn of Rohingya women who claim mass rape & torture by the military during the genocidal offensive of the past several months. Suu Kyi’s behavior, sometimes played out in international venues, is beyond vile. She can kiss her bony ass goodbye as a human rights icon.
In researching, I’m discovering the extraordinary work which goes back decades of Burmese women activists & organizations, often from the targeted ethnic groups, documenting, campaigning, educating on this issue–often from exile. The human race has produced some remarkable people who will not bend the knee to get ahead. It’s humbling to read about them. It’s such an honor too.
